Edinburgh Castle and Princes Street Gardens

The snow in Princes Street Gardens draws attention to the shapes of the trees, the small bandstand (now gone) and Edinburgh Castle on Castle Rock.

In recent years there have been very few days when Princes Street Gardens have had a covering of snow.  In the early 1900s, when this photograph was taken the winters appear to have been colder, with skaters and curlers to be found on the lochs in Queen's Park.
